2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 8

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card that I made using Quick Quotes papers and inks to participate in the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, one the most popular crafting hops.

Take a look at my card:


  • I created this using fall colors of decorated paper and we have a lot of these in our different collections. 
  • For the base I used the striped side of Honeycomb 102 and then I cut a cross stitched circle using the Orange side. 
  • Then I stamped two different images with the Milk Chocolate PowderPuff Chalk Ink. 
  • The Coffee Cup is part of the Freshly Brewed Blueprint stamp set from Tim Holtz and the sentiment is Mr. Coffee from Crackerbox Palace. 
  • I stamped these two images over the cross stitched rectangle and square respectively. 
 
  • I pasted all the layers using dimensionals to have different heights.
  • As a final touch I added a die cut border with leaves that I cut using Chiffon 104 paper and inked with PowderPuff Chalk Inks in Latte, Green Leaf and Milk Chocolate. 
  • I also added a few drops of Novu Green Crystal Drops.

2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 7

Hi, Connie here with a card for the Coffee Lovers Blog hop with Quick Quotes.

I'm using the Windsong Collection with Mocha Mama, Java and Latte  PowderPuff Chalk inks by Quick Quotes. These beautiful inks, all named after coffee, are gorgeous rich colors and do remind me of coffee.


The Windsong Collection, by Quick Quotes, is very subtle but I loved how it matched the vintage coffee creamer lid I wanted to add to the card. The blue and brown colors were a perfect match.  The stamping was done using the Mocha Mama and Java PowderPuff Chalk inks.



Quick Quotes Supplies:
Windsong Paper Pack
PowderPuff Chalk Inks: Mocha Mama. Java and Latte

Other Supplies:

2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 6!

Greetings and welcome to the blog today!

It's Rhonda hosting and featuring my project in celebration of the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!   It's seriously caffeinated and features pieces from the August Club Q Kits.

Card featuring Harmony collection by Quick Quotes as featured in 2017 September Club Q designed for 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop designed by Rhonda Van Ginkel

I began with a cream cardstock base card from my stash and added several layers of pretty patterned paper from a new collection named "Harmony" which is part of the kits.

I used a coffee cup die to cut the focal design and the coordinating stamps along with Java PowderPuff Chalk Ink for the sentiment. The steam flourish was cut from cream cardstock and colored with Latte PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

Good morning,  smell the coffee yet?  Alicia with you today serving up some coffee, lattes and frappacinos!  I created a couple of cards in a box for your sipping pleasure.  

Cards in a box are really super easy, I was intimidated at first but after you do one the rest are a breeze.  I always suggest creating a sample using white card stock because making a mistake on the initial try on any special fold card is likely.  You can find several templates and tutorials with the measurements on Pinterest.



I die cut several of the coffee images out of vanilla card stock.  I cut the pieces and parts out of various papers from Quick Quotes. I used acetate to attach my coffee cuts to the inside of the box.  I have also seen vellum used, both provide a relatively transparent way to attach the cuts and images that will "pop" out of the box.



I stamped the images with Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalking Ink and a stamping tool.  I was able to stamp in the exact position twice to insure a clean image.  I used the same chalking ink to ink all the edges of the box and various parts.  I finished off the card with a ribbon tied in a bow around the base.


Here's my second card using the same images but in different positions.  I also used a few different papers.  I love them both and have already sent them to deserving recipients. 


Thank you so much for taking the time to check out the photos of my projects today.

Greetings friends and fellow crafters!

LeeAnn here today with my submission for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. This is seriously the event I look forward to every quarter, and time sure did fly since the summer hop.


So, on with my project...  Using card stock from Serenade papers which is included in this month's Club Q Kits, I cut a base of 5.25" x 4", I then cut another at 5" x 3.75" to use as a top layer.

I then used Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalk Ink to brush coffee stains through a stencil from my stash. I used a die from my stash to cut the coffee cup and saucer from Serenade paper again.

The sentiment is from Joy Clair and stamped with Mocha Mama Powderpuff Chalk.

Hello Quick Quotes and Coffee Lovers fans!

June hosting today. Hope you have been enjoying all the fun, fall, coffee themed projects so far!

Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year as Mother Nature brings in such beautiful colors and the weather is wonderful. I used the Whistlin' Dixie collection along with our coffee colored PowderPuff Chalking inks to create this card:


  • The background was created using Whistlin' Dixie 107 (yellow) with Sunset and Mocha Mama PowderPuff inks and a stencil.
 
  • The leaves were die cut from Whistin' Dixie 100 and edged with Seafoam and Mocha Mama PowderPuff inks. Check out the big difference the inks make!

  • The coffee cup was die cut from Windsong 103 and edged with Latte PowderPuff ink. The "lid" was ink blended with Mocha Mama PowderPuff ink.
  • The "Delight In The Day" sentiment is from Whistlin' Dixie 500 cut apart quotes sheet. As it was bright white, I toned it down rubbing Latte PowderPuff ink on it. The "All Smiles" chipboard is from the Earth Wind Fire collection.
 
  • To finish off this card, twine and yellow jewel drops were added.

Hello and welcome!  Susie hosting the blog today and I am so very happy to help us kick off the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  I am sharing a card that features some wonderful "coffee inspired"  PowderPuff Chalking Ink colors!


I started by stamping a coffee bean background using Java.


I stamped a doll image on watercolor paper with archival black ink. I then chose Latte PowderPuff Chalking Ink to provide the skin tone on my stamped image. I stamped the ink onto my craft mat, spritzed on some water and used a paintbrush to watercolor the image.


In the same manner, I water colored the hair with Java.

The jacket was colored with Bora Bora and the dress was colored with Slate.


I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then added the coffee mug, colored with Bora Bora, on top.


The finishing touch was the sprinkling of blue and brown rhinestones.


Quick Quotes Supplies
PowderPuff Chalking Inks: Java, Latte, Slate, Bora Bora

Other Supplies: 
Coffee Time - Darkroom Door Stamps 
A Hug in a Mug - Taylored Expressions 
Mixed Media Doll Stamp - Natalie - Prima/Julie Nutting

Vintage Photo Solution with Connie and Canon

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Mulberry Collection, by Quick Quotes, and my Canon iP8720 printer!

The photograph I wanted to scrapbook had been scanned from an original photograph and frankly looked like a scanned photo. My Canon iP8720 printer helped to give me a better picture.


Like I said before, this is a scanned copy. With my Canon printer, I was able to add a border around the photo, so simple, but really cleaned the edges up.

 
The original photo was black and white, so no grey scale on the print out, just print out.
The second picture shows the border box and the program adds a border to your photo. Love the border around the photo.

 
This photo is printed as a 5" x 7" on Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy 11.  

 
Project Instructions:
  1. Cut photo mat 5 1/4" x 7 1/4" and adhere photo.
  2. Cut middle paper about 8" x 11".
  3. Shade with PowderPuff Chalk Inks and adhere slightly off the center of the paper.
  4. Punch two borders and shade and add them to the sides of the middle mat paper.
  5. Cut die cuts from selection sheet.
  6. Adhere to top left, creating a banner.
  7. Add twine and buttons.
  8. Add title and journal. 



Products used:
Mulberry Paper Pack
Mulberry 500: Quotes and Phrases
PowderPuff Chalk Inks: Violet, Clay, Midnight Confessions and Brandywine.
Canon Printer:
Canon Printer iP8720
Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy 11

Album Inspiration with Martha

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you a surprise album that I prepared using Serenade 100 and 103 papers and my Canon PIXMA TS 9020 printer.

To create this project I used a tube box that I have from a perfume but you can also use a toilet paper tube. Take a look of my surprise album:

A surprise album

Creating the box is very simple, I just covered the tube with Serenade 100 paper and decorated the top with some paper flowers. I just take the measurements for the base and the top and cut two different pieces to can open the box easily.

A surprise album

Then I created the reel of the photos to put inside of the tube. I selected some pictures of my daughter Mariantonia and printed them on my Canon PIXMA TS 9020 using the Canon Image Garden that I have installed on my computer. It offers me many creative and print options. I selected the bordered x4 using 4" x 6" Canon Glossy Paper and Landscape orientation.

A surprise album

When I was satisfied with the photos that I wanted to use I clicked the print option and a new menu appeared on my desktop. I selected my best options and in less than 20 seconds I had my photo printed.

A surprise album

I cut the photo in horizontal line and pasted them in a reel over a piece of Serenade 103 paper. Then I rolled and secured it with a gold metallic miniclip and put the surprise album inside the decorated tube.

A surprise album

I hope this project inspired you to use different elements and to use all the options that Canon printers offer you!
